  • Apple Poaching OLED Talent from LG


    Although Apple has lost its fair share of top talent in recent years through resignation and dismissal, the Mac-maker hasn't lost its touch when it comes to recruiting top talent either.

    One such example, much to LG's chagrin, emerged today. Apple, it seems, has successfully courted the talents of Dr. Lee Jeung-jil. An OLED expert and a veteran of LG, Dr. Jeung-jil has apparently joined the team at Apple following a lengthy career at LG Display, where he was closely involved with printing technology research.

    Dr. Lee's previous employee (before LGD) was Cambridge Display Technology, the P-OLED pioneer (now owned by Sumitomo).
    With such an authority on OLED joining the company, it's another significant reminder of Apple's undeniable interest in OLEDs - an interest exemplified in recent years through the company's high-profile acquisition of patents related to flexible OLEDs, OLED based BLUs for LCDs, OLED control schemes and more.

    According to OLED-info.com, which first reported the story, it certainly seems like an OLED iOS product "will come eventually... the real question is when..."

      iAMOLED? I wonder if that's taken yet?
      Or better yet, how many Samsung owners actually know what AMOLED stands for?

      Potentially it could be better, if only it weren't coupled to a phone that looks and feels like its made of cheap plastic
